Emily Ratajkowski welcomed her son Sylvester Apollo in March. And now she’s dealing with her first public experience of mocking her mother.
Ratajkowski, 30, has been criticized after posting multiple photos of her holding baby Sylvester while on vacation. “Birthday with my dream couple on vacation,” she wrote in the caption for the post showing several photos of herself holding her son in matching bathing suits.
Piers Morgan, a father of four, shared a photo on Twitter. with the message that “That’s not how you carry @emrata – and millions of followers shouldn̵7;t be encouraged to do the same. Happy to give advice if you want.”
Many in the comments of Morgan’s tweet also criticized Ratajkowski, “Today is like an icon. Look at mee, not newborn meeeee. It’s all about meeeee and just you wait my book on parenting for a while. avoiding food,” one wrote, “all she was worried about showing her body … carrying a baby like a bag of inconvenience,” another said.
Ratajkowski has muted comments on her Instagram post, which has been liked by more than 1,900,000 million people.
Ratajkowski is almost the first celebrity to face abusing mother, Singer Pink swears in 2019 on Ellen DeGeneres Show to stop posting about your kids her on social media After being repeatedly criticized for the photos and videos she shared. Former Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson spoke in 2020 after regularly commenting on her parenting skills, saying in her Instagram Stories: “All of us moms are doing our best. we are trying We’re crying, we’re trying to push us through. So you guys should celebrate all mothers. if you have advice Let’s try to speak in a kind way because let’s be honest. None of us know exactly what we are doing.”
Although most people know that teasing a mother is a bad thing, “people like to judge,” says Dr. Tamar Goure, a psychiatrist and women’s health expert at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Yahoo Life, but what most people don’t know is that being embarrassed by a mother can be incredibly painful, she said.
“Every new parent is incredibly strict with themselves,” Gur says. “Our biggest fear for parents is that we’re not good enough and shame is very damaging,” Gur points out. I saw that not only would my mother be embarrassed “Really painful and unfair,” but in the end “In a way, it comes from misogyny and a lack of support for women.”
The proper way to carry a child has been raised many times by critics. And it’s understandable to have questions, Dr. Danelle Fisher, a pediatrician and chief of pediatrics at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica. The state of California told Yahoo Life that it’s important to remember that younger babies, usually less than four months old, don’t have good head control. “Their head and neck muscles are still strong. So you have to support your head,” she said.
But when the baby grows a little or is able to sit on its own “You don’t need to support your head as much,” she says. Holding a baby on their torso or midsection can also increase their chances of spitting.
in a perfect situation Fisher said Babies should receive support for their underarms, torso and head all at once. “There are many ways to hold a baby. And you don’t have to carry a baby the same way,” she said. “You just want to make sure the baby has good support.”
Ultimately, Fisher says, the amount of fostering a baby needs while being carried really depends on the baby. “We wanted to assess how well the baby was able to sit and position itself. and respond to the baby’s needs,” she said.
Whether you know how to carry the “right” baby or not, have you ever wanted to comment on someone’s upbringing? In addition to the incredibly positive, Gur offers this advice: “Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you is helping someone or their child.”
And if you become a mother to be ashamed of, Gur recommends reminding yourself that “Everyone makes mistakes and sometimes they fail.”
“If you know you are trying your best and you are human. Other people have no power over you,” she said.
